Reviews for his work in All's Faire in Love:

The only grandly comic turn comes from Chris Wylde as a true fool in royal's clothing, merrily meta-villainous and at times simply lunatic with the period playacting. He's so mesmerizingly weird that you can practically see him on a 16th century stage, giving Globe Theater patrons a "Twelfth Night" Toby Belch for the ages.
Los Angeles Times


Also good is Wylde's Prince Rank, who never steps out of character (except during a cell-phone call, which is itself a pretty good joke) and seems to be channeling every swashbuckling character actor from Basil Rathbone to Bill Nighy, with more than a soupcon of Bette Davis.
Variety


As Rank, Chris Wylde is the stand-out in this farce, the one guy who could have made it work as a PG comedy, or as a more gonzo “Role Models” style R-rated raunch-a-thon.
